When one of our clients asked us to research ways to dress up their wedding cupcake display we started our research and were thrilled to find Bella Cupcake Couture.
The concept for Liz and Eric’s Colorado wedding celebration began with a wire bird. The theme blossomed with the design of paper products – two birds perched in the tree of life. Incorporating the groom’s French Canadian heritage with his bride’s American culture, invitations and programs were printed in both English and French. The idea took flight with the creation of three distinct table designs for the Timber Ridge décor. Tables were monochromatic – green, orange, or brown; each incorporating the wire bird, birch bark and accordion vases, and color-coordinated floral, napkins, and chair ties.
Our next stop on the Iconic Weddings tour was Breckenridge. This quaint ski town offers majestic backdrops for Colorado destination weddings, no matter the season. With a variety of wedding venues available for couples to consider for their wedding, here are a few of our favorites.
Brides, you should look beautiful in your wedding photos, period. You’ve heard over & over, I’m sure, that the memories of the day that will last a lifetime . . . and I’m willing to bet you are shelling out a pretty penny to your wedding photographer to capture those memories for you! We are SO lucky in Colorado to have such uber-talented photographers, yet when I scroll through some of their blogs, the makeup often makes me cringe. It breaks my heart for bad makeup to ruin a beautiful photo. So here’s my advice: the top three things to avoid…
Water rushing through Gore Creek was the background acoustic, as Dyann and Dave said their vows on the back lawn of Vail’s Lions Square Lodge. Vail Mountain provided a majestic backdrop for the Colorado wedding. Guests enjoyed cocktails on the patio at Donovan Pavilion. Inside a champagne décor topped with paprika and eggplant accents set an elegant tone for the evening’s events. Stems of orchids immersed in water contrasted with bright mixed floral arrangements on guest tables. A cupcake tower tempted guests to eat more than just one. A photo booth captured the mood.
Every bride knows the poem, “Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue,” describing what the bride should wear for good luck on her wedding day. At Four Seasons Hotel Denver, the “old” is left up to the bride, but the “new,” the “blue” and the “borrowed” are covered. In an exclusive partnership with Denver-based Hyde Park Jewelers, brides who host their wedding ceremony or reception at the new Four Seasons Hotel Denver ballrooms have an opportunity to borrow a necklace and a pair of earrings from Hyde Park, to ensure they are dazzling on their big day.

Most people think addressing envelopes for a special event – even a wedding – is no big deal, but it is!
Kelly and Mark’s wedding this summer was more about their becoming husband and wife, they were also committing to each other’s children – creating a family. Incorporating their three children into the wedding ceremony was important to them both.
The Broadmoor in Colorado Springs was the perfect location for the intimate wedding ceremony and reception. Guests were treated to delicious cuisine butler passed and set up in action stations while enjoying the sounds of a jazz trio. Keeping the kids in mind, a special table was set up for them with an activity book, crayons and candy for each.
At the end of the night, guests were sent off with a special treat of milk and cookies.
